Can you tell why '87' is considered inauspicious by some people?Human being is generally weak-not only in physical sense, but mentally also. As a result, human being is prone to various superstitions. This superstition applies for numbers also. No. 13 is considered very unlucky. This thinking is related to Christian tradition. Similarly No. 111 is considered unlucky by British people. This attitude is related to famous British Admiral Nelson and his physical handicaps. This belief has been extended to No. 222 (Double Nelson) and No. 333 (Triple Nelson). Similarly, Japanese people consider No. 4 very inauspicious. They link No. 4 with the fourth stage of human being, i.e., death.
Now let us come to the subject-matter of this thread. Australian cricket-lovers consider No. 87 as unlucky. I would like to know why this particular No. is considered unlucky by some Australians. Please don't consult Google-uncle. If it is already known, post the answer. If you don't, try to deduce why this No. is considered unlucky.
Take it as a challenge. I am waiting for correct reply. (Of course, I myself know the reason.)
